Jeff Gordon continued his fast Preseason Thunder practice at Daytona International Speedway leading Saturday's first session.

Gordon, who topped Thursday's opening round, turned a lap of 201.545 mph.

Teams used the smaller restrictor plate that started the three-day test in favor of the larger plate NASCAR introduced during Friday's two sessions.

Mostly single car runs and a few two-car tandems were the order of the session with more pack drafting expected Saturday afternoon, which will be the last on track time at Daytona before Speedweeks rolls around in February.

I REALLY want to see Jeff win a title under the Chase format. Technically, he's been robbed twice already. Once big TIME! I think it was '07 he would have won the Championship by well over 300 points in the old system. He set a Mondern era recond with 30 top 10's in 36 races. THIRTY! top 10's! Think about that...

That would be awesome to see Gordon and Johnson battle door-to-door for the title like Edwards and Stewart. It would be mentor vs. prodigy and hopefully Gordon can even the score!

I know it's only testing, But Gordon dominated the whole week. This is a good sign and could mean trouble for the rest of the field for the whole season. I for one am hoping this will be his year. He's already been "robbed" of 2 titles because of the chase format.
